Forget grizzlies and wolves. But watch out when shooting elks.
Here is a first-hand report how one can loose a tripod, camera, and nice long lens:

Fortunately, the photographer escaped unhurt.

It is always too easy to underestimate wildlife. While I normally haven't been around larger wildlife, smaller wildlife can still be dangerous to photographers and their equipment. Even as I found out on a recent night expedition, a friendly cat can possibly knock a light tripod over - or at least mess up the long exposure.

Dogs off the leash from their owners can be a nuisance. Recently a dog was standing under my tripod with a stone at it's feet and wagging it's tail, barking and wanting me to play with it. Luckily it was friendly. Today a dog looked like it wanted to jump up at me whilst I was using my camera and tripod. At least they don't have antlers!

Never let dogs off a leash near elk. Very unpleasant results for the dog may result. Some of my neighbors dogs have had their lives ended due to this.
